August 8, 1946 - May 24, 2018
Patricia (Patti) Jean Schmidt of Bremerton, WA died on May 24, 2018 at home. Patti was born in Ballard WA on August 8 1946 to the late Edward and Grace (Schoonover) Kohler. She graduated from the then West Bremerton High School in 1965. Her greatest joy was raising her son Jesse, they made each other laugh often in his childhood. She was married for 32 years to Thomas Schmidt. Patti is remembered for her laughter and for often saying I love you to Tom and to her friends, neighbors, and son. She collected chicken figurines, antique perfume bottles, buttons and miniature knick-knacks. In healthier years, she enjoyed dancing (even in her kitchen!), clam digging, time spent at a cabin on the Icicle River, doing crafts, and being in nature. She loved to garden, the colors pink and purple, and listening to music. She loved rhododendrons. She was proud of being a homemaker as her last career – known for her spotless home and good cooking when she was able bodied. She was always pleased when someone asked for her recipe of something she had made for them. As her health declined, she enjoyed visits from her neighbors who became like family to her, watching Masterpiece theatre, and having Pepe, her dog, in her lap. Raised in the Catholic faith, Patti loved the Lord’s prayer. Patti was preceded in death by her parents, sister Eileen Kohler, mother-in-law Margaret Schmidt, brother-in-law Richard Schmidt and beloved dog Rascal. She is survived by her husband Thomas Schmidt, son Jesse Lewin, grandsons Carl, Andy, and Levi, nephews Brian and Brad, brothers-in-law Harry (Donna) Schmidt and Steven (Laura) Schmidt, and sisters-in-law Georgia (Doug) McClure and Lucy Mahoney, and her companion poodle Pepe. She will also be missed by her neighbors. Patti will be cremated and will eventually be laid to rest with Tom at a later date. A private family memorial will possibly occur later this summer. Please do not send flowers, cards may be appreciated. If a memorial gift is desired, please give to your favorite charity in her memory.
